On Tuesday 4th September, we held our Annual Junior Speech Competition. We welcomed the contestant’s families into the school and in front of them, the Year 9 cohort and a selected panel of judges, the competition was held. The students had been selected based on their success within their Speech Assessments in class. The winning eight students took to the stage for their voices to be heard on issues such as global warming, bullying, smoking and self-identity. The judges were incredibly impressed by the standard set at this year’s competition and placing was close.
